No more Mr. nice guy - Not Just Another Nightmare really underrated horror slasher my personal favorite film

This is one of my favorite horror films from master of horror Wes Craven. The movie come out on September 8, 2015 on Blu-ray disc from Scream factory. One of the best very underrated supernatural horror films. It is my second favorite Wes Craven film it is dear to my heart it is close to A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) the original film that I love to death it is my number 1 Wes Craven film, this is my second film. I love Shocker to death it is a movie I grew up with it.

This film come out in 1989 the same year that was A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child released and Shocker is Miles was better movie than The Dream Child in my opinion. Heather Langenkamp from A Nightmare on Elm Street 1, 3 and New Nightmare is in here as Pinker's first victim, she has a cameo scene I am glad. Heather and Wes collaborated the third time working together. Heather was excellent in here as Horace Pinker's first victim. Mitch Pileggi as Horace Pinker was a bad-ass slasher like Freddy Krueger from Elm Street series. I love his one liners, I love the acting performance from the actor Mitch Pileggi. He was excellent as Horace Pinker serial killer. Fantastic dream sequences creative made. The movie is well imaginative made. Peter Berg as Jonathan Parker as the hero was excellent I love him in this movie. Cami Cooper as Alison Clemens girlfriend of Jonathan Parker was excellent I like her performance In here. Wes Craven written and directed perfectly this movie. I miss Cami Cooper the actress also is not in the film business anymore, I miss the actress she was great as Alison Clemens.

The movie is about a serial killer in this town who dose several murders. He is a TV Service man Horace Pinker. There is this football kid Jonathan Parker in a collage. He has a dream in which he dreams that Horace kills his adoptive family. He finds out that the dream was true and his foster family is murdered. He finds out that his dream is connected to the killer and when he identified the killer by his Detective father Lt. Don Parker. Horace kills 4 cops and escapes and get's revenge on Jonathan when his identity was exposed and kills his girlfriend. Trough dream sequence Jonathan tracks him down and helps police to capture him. Horace goes on a eclectic chair, but before that Horace plays with black magic with electricity, he get's zapped on a electric chair and Horace Pinker transforms into terrifying energy source. He becomes a shape shifting demon who posses body's to get revenge on Jonathan Parker. Now Jonathan Parker, with an uncanny connection to Pinker trough bizarre dreams, can fight the powerful demon alone. The Two dive in and out of television programs, chasing each other from channel trough stunning scenes of disaster, game shows and old reruns.

This movie is pretty damn good I always enjoy this film I have it on Blu-ray I absolutely love the work from Wes Craven and Heather Langenkamp. Cami Cooper was a ghost as Alison in this movie she fight off Horace and helps Jonathan. This movie is unique and different from Nightmare On Elm Street. Shocker and A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge are very underrated 80's horror movie that I will always cherish and love. It has a good ideas that Wes Craven made, a very unique movie he made. Very entertaining it goes fast around. The whole possession thing he used was interesting twist on in with electrically current possessing people going in and out and TV's to the furniture. One point has the furniture eyes try's to hold Jonathan. It is very interesting creative film written and directed by Wes Craven. Michael Murphy was great as Lt. Don Parker I love him in this movie. Lindsay Parker as Little Girl, Dendrie Taylor as Young Mother and Kane Roberts as Road Worker were really good in the park when they cross path with Jonathan. I love this little girl trying to run over Jonathan. Or the co worker Kane Roberts is excellent.

I love the main song Shocker I love this song to death by The Dudes Of Wrath. I love love No More Mr. Nice Guy by Megadeth excellent song fantastic. Sword and Stone by Bonfire is another excellent song from Shocker. Different Breed by Dead On is another awesome song I love. I love the music score from William Goldstein. Shocker is underrated horror slasher film in my opinion it defines my childhood I love this movie.

I love this flick to death - A Wes Craven's underrated classic horror flick!

Shocker (1989) is a master of horror Wes Craven's underrated excellent horror flick, that I do believe is a classic and I love it to death! It is my third favorite Wes Craven's horror flick. This movie is a memories on my childhood, I grew up watching this movie as a kid. The same thing that was with the Chinese director John Woo by me, I had no idea who was Wes Craven or that it was directed by him. The only movie I memorized by Wes was Scream, which become my favorite film when I was 15 years old, I watched Scream with my mom and even my mom liked Scream. I found out a year later about this film Shocker, but version I had on VHS was extremely horrible lousy picture quality and awful audio. The subtitles were extreme lousy dubbed so I couldn't watch this film. Now recently I got this film on Blu-ray and I really had a blast watching this horror film!

A Nightmare on Elm Street and New Nightmare are my favorite Wes Craven's horror films that I love to death and Shocker is my third favorite horror film is my number 3 Wes Craven's slasher horror flick, that I love to death! This amazing stylish horror film from the late 80's is about a diabolical mass murderer who harness electricity for unimaginable killing powers. Why I love this film? because Horace Pinker is a bad ass, kick-ass villain! The film simply reminds me on A Nightmare on Elm Street the original flick. Btw I hate horror idiotic icon Michael Myers from Halloween franchise, I hate him and I hate Jason Voorhees the same as Myers, but Horace Pinker could kick both of their assess! I love this film because in any horror film that I remember the main hero of the whole film is a kick ass guy who is likable decent male hero character trough whole film! In every horror film that I remember the main hero is always some stupid girl, but Wes tried something else which it worked.

You have a great horror, likable characters, a lot's of action, a lot of fantasy in it and a lot of fun. This is Peter Berg's best film in his whole career which is an awesome classic! Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) from A Nightmare on Elm Street is my favorite number 1 horror icon heroine but Jonathan Parker is my favorite number 1 horror icon which I love him to death.

I love the music scores from Megadeth and The Dudes of Wrath, I love soundtracks No More Mr. Nice Guy and shocker to death.

My favorite scene is when Horace Pinker (Mitch Pileggi) posses the body of 9 year old girl and drives an excavator and try's to kill Jonathan which that scene was incredible awesome! Horace posses the body of Lt. Don Parker (Michael Murphy) and hunts down Jonathan (Peter Berg) and shots with a gun on him, missing him and they both fight face off on a tower when they both climbing up and Don Parker kick's him away.

Ghost Alison Clemens (Camille Cooper) kick's Horace's spirit away from Jonathan.

Jonathan face's off Horace him self and fight's him off and finally beat's him in his own game, like Nancy did and he survives.

The cast is very solid in here: Mitch Pileggi gave a solid performance, Peter Berg's best underrated role, Camille Cooper is very underrated and excellent actress in here.

You also have Ted Raimi in here and Heather Langenkamp in a cameo scene as Horace's Victim.

Wes Craven did amazing job as script writer and director you have a solid script and awesome dialogue in the film.

R.I.P. - Wes Craven (1939 - 2015) I really miss you and thank you for all the Freddy movies, thank you for all horror franchise and movies like are: A Nightmare on Elm Street, New Nightmare, Scream, The Serpent and the Rainbow, Shocker and The People Under the Stairs. I love you so much I wish you could done more horror movies I really love them.

Overall: I love Shocker to death and it is my third favorite Wes Craven's horror film! The rating is a 10/10 for me.

Review of an awesome film

Probably one of the craziest movies Wes Craven ever made, and one of the craziest movies ever.

Now, i like many critically acclaimed movies that got bunch of awards and stuff, but i also love wild movies such as Shocker. This is one of those movies that i can always watch and never get bored by it. It's hard to list everything that i like about it; Heavy metal soundtrack, serial killer with a limp, bunch of hallucinations and nightmares throughout, final fight between hero and villain in TV world... It's just one hell of a movie.

There is some gore, but instead of being torture porn like Saw or Hostel movies, it has its limits with violence and juicer scenes and it doesn't hurt the movie but actually helps a lot, cause you can watch it without feeling sick by on screen carnage and still have fun with it even if you are 100% gore hound.

Story? Watch the movie and try to tell its story; In first part we have slasher that goes around neighborhood killing entire families, our main hero is actually son of the villain but he doesn't knows it at first (no sht), he has dreams about murders that his daddy commits, daddy kills son's new family and girlfriend, gets caught,burned to crisp and resurrects as electrical ghost not even minute after, then in second part of the movie we have main villain entering other people's bodies and goes after hero, hero starts seeing ghosts of his dead girlfriend and other people that villain killed, villain gets bored with his new ability and returns to his old hobby of killing families but this time by going through TV sets, hero goes after him and fights him through the bunch of different channels of the TV world while "Demon Bell" is playing in background and in the end traps him in TV and walks away into the night.

Yep, that pretty much says it all.

Acting and directing; Well,pretty much O.K. But then again, if somebody's gonna take this movie seriously then they will be very critical about these two things.

Horror and scary scenes; Quite a lot, and they work.

Soundtrack...Best part of the movie. Songs are awesome, my favorites are "Shocker" that opens the movie, "Love Temptation" that plays after funeral of Jonathan's family, "Demon Bell" that plays in the craziest and funniest scene in the movie-the TV world fight, and two ending songs, "Sword And Stone" and "Timeless Love". "Awakening" i also like but mostly just first part of it, i personally think that it would fit well with the scene where Jonathan is searching for necklace of his dead girlfriend through the lake. I don't know when or is it actually played in the movie though.

Score; Also excellent. Both scary and sad in places when it's supposed to be. My favorite part of it is in scene where Jonathan dreams his dead girlfriend coming out of the lake and later when they kiss. Say what you want about Wes Craven, but he always could get few things right in (most of) his movies, and getting a score that would get desired reaction from audience is one thing that his movies always had. Just check out scores for Nightmare On Elm Street, Deadly Friend, Shocker and Scream.

Problems with movie; Not much, except maybe the fact that MPAA have cut out some gorier parts, but it's not that noticeable when watching the movie so it doesn't bother me that much. Still, uncut version would be nice.

Does this movie deserves better release and special edition? Hell yeah it does!

My final opinion; Fun as hell movie, one my favorites of the era and from director, with one kick ass soundtrack that makes it even better.
